In 2004, American Heart Association kicked off the Go Red For Women movement. Most women in our country considered heart disease “an old man’s problem”—when,in fact, heart disease is the #1 killer of women, killing one out of three women, more than all kinds of cancer combined. FLEET FEET Sports Greensboro & High Point is a proud sponsor of Go Red for Women to increase awareness of heart disease in women and promote fitness in our community.
BackPack Beginnings’ mission is to provide children in need with nutritious food, comfort items or certain basic necessities through the use of backpacks and other efficient means. By ensuring food and basic necessities are given directly to children in need, we make a positive and lasting impact on their health and well-being. Each year, Fleet Feet Greensboro and High Point puts together a destination fun run from one store location to the other called The Fleet Feet Pickle. The run raises money and awareness for BackPack Beginnings.
Tuxedo Trot: Run for the Penguins is a fun, family-friendly event created to raise funds for endangered African penguins. Owner, John Dewey, works closely with the race to promote the Natural Science Center in Greensboro and create a race that can best raise money for the Pengiuns.
